That is the title of a long overdue report by the ABC TV Network News Division addressing the true facts within the Obamacare legislation. Here is a link to the article by Guy Benson (admittedly a very conservative website) which addresses ABC-TV Jake Tapper’s report.

Your Commander has written about the limited reporting by the majority of network and other news outlets assigned to cover the White House. Most filed stories are very pro-administration. Few in the Press Pool ask significant questions during the Press conferences, no doubt because they fear rarely being called upon again. Some ABC and Fox reporters have posed probing inquiries and in some cases have ended up being transferred because they were essentially boycotted by the administration

I salute both ABC and Fox for doing the vital job of a probing press corps. Bits and pieces of Obamacare are coming to the clear light of day and the people don’t like what they see and hear. They especially do not like the fact insurance companies are raising their health care premiums dramatically in anticipation of rising costs forced upon them by the fine print within the Obamacare legislation. Remember, Congress was famously told by then House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, “But we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of the controversy.” Thanks, Nancy, because we are learning there are plenty of dirty devils in the details of Obamacare.

The truth always comes out eventually, and Obamacare must be overturned. Then a realistic and economically sustainable health bill should be put forth and passed by the next Congress.

So true. The insurance companies raise their rates in anticipation of Obama-care costs. The employers and employees of small businesses can no longer afford the premiums. They go without insurance. This will increase the number of people who will be forced to participate when plan goes into effect next year. It is not a solution. The problem begins with the fact that these huge insurance companies get away with charging more in premiums that some people earn.
